    black screen of death, any help

    think I've killed it, trying to flash it using odin and it kept hanging on "setupconnection"

    I disconnected the phone reset and it just went to the black screen of death, I've tried 3 button combo but no luck, have now ordered a usb jig so hopefully will get it fixed, but was reading this thread anyone got any more info as the link is broken?

    no one know about the poking reset button? I don't seem to have a button on mine, or doesn't seem to push in ....

    have ordered a jig so hopefully next time it will flash correctly, any ideas what went wrong?

    The what???

    If you can't get into download mode on the SGS, the jig is the easiest way.

    link in the first post, seemed they where talking about a reset button on the back, hold it with 3 button combo and sometimes works but the actual original thread on xda has gone.

    going to have a good read make sure I don't mess it up next time aswell

    Yes, the poking reset button. I remember the thread on here. The thread at XDA has gone.

    This was the recess between the camera and speaker seen with the rear cover off.

    Don't recall the exact sequence to use, though. I think it was push a pin (or paperclip) in that recess and try to get into recovery using the usual key combo.

    Never tried it myself, though.


    EDIT: Or was it download mode - I forget.
